AMCHAM was founded under the patronage of Clay Constantinou, the U.S. Ambassador to Luxembourg in 1996, with the aim of providing Luxembourg and American affiliated international business companies and communities with an independent support structure organization which would:
- Speak and function in English.
- Help the members to be informed and manage an ever more complicated regulatory, tax and compliance environment within Luxembourg, the European Union, and globally,
- Enable the members to collectively interact and engage with like-minded business leaders both locally and around the world to discuss common problems and develop appropriate business friendly solutions,
- Collectively communicate and lobby effectively with their governmental counterparts to ensure government-imposed solutions are just, fair, and balanced.
Since our founding, AMCHAM has grown to well over 350 Luxembourg based member companies and organizations. More importantly, the AMCHAM member list represents a “who’s who” of the international and expatriate communities of Luxembourg and a level of influence and access not readily apparent by the number of members alone. That said, the Chamber has evolved into a strong voice speaking for both the international business community in Luxembourg and for the individual English-speaking expats themselves. We are an excellent networking organization, a great information resource and a very active lobbying organization.
Our goal is to keep you informed, protect your interests, and offer you topical and timely information on matter of interest in the U.S., Luxembourg and globally, so you can make and implement the best decisions for your company, your shareholders, and your employees.
We invite you to get to know us better and join us to make Luxembourg an even better and more successful place to work and live!
Be assured all high-quality companies, regardless of the nationality of their origin are warmly welcome to join in our mix of 30% US companies, 20 Luxembourg heritage companies and 50% companies/origination from around the worlds.
With respect and our very best wishes,
Paul Michael Schonenberg
Chairman and CEO
